The ancient Olympic Games were first introduced in 776 BC. In these games, representatives from various city-states across ancient Greece got together to compete in athletic games, such as running, discus-throwing and the long-jump.
Fast forward to today-2016! The 2016 Summer Olympic games will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The games will begin on August 5, 2016 and end on August 21, 2016 at Maracană Stadium.
